Camping at White Pines Forest
Looking to spend a night under the stars? White Pines has 103 class B/S campsites with vehicular access and a shower/flush toilet building. There are 3 electric hook-up sites which are non-reservable. There are also sites available for the physically challenged. Soft ground conditions may sometimes close campgrounds during the months of March and April. Call ahead during those times to check the status. Campsites may be reserved by visiting the
ExploreMoreIL website. Availability is generally not a problem aside from holiday weekends. There is an alcohol ban in the campground all year around. Camping rates are $10 a night per site. Limitations on a site are 4 adults or 1 family per site, 2 tents per site and 2 vehicles per site. Each site has a fire ring and a picnic table.
There are also youth group campgrounds available. Reservations will no longer be accepted through the park office, but are available using the ExploreMoreIL website. While pets are allowed in the park you're required to have proof of current rabies vaccination with you, keep the pet leashed at all times and not to be left unattended. Excessive barking will not be allowed. It is required that firewood be purchased locally as most counties to our east fall into the quarantine areas for the non transportation of firewood outside your county due to the Emerald Ash Borer.
